Good News: Nevada County Depot and Museum Expands Operation Hours
Do you love trains? No, I mean do you LOVE trains? I do, I grew up with a grandfather who was a train engineer for Southern Pacific Railroad. If you don't know, that means he drove the train, he even let me drive one once. Don't worry, it was a freight train, with no passengers, I think I got to move it about 50 yards, but still. Well, if you love trains and history, this should be good news to you, the Nevada County Depot and Museum have expanded its hours of operation.
The museum will now be open to the public Thursdays through Saturdays, 9 AM to 5 PM, and they invite you to come and celebrate Nevada County, Arkansas history and learn about the region’s rich heritage.
For more information, please contact the museum at 870-887-5821 or visit us on Facebook!
“We are so pleased that we can now be open on Fridays and Saturdays,” says museum director, Jamie Simmons. “Not only does this allow local residents more convenient times to visit, it also gives travelers another destination to visit on their journeys.”
The Nevada County Depot and Museum is in Prescott, Arkansas, less than an hour’s drive from Texarkana and Hope along I30. Hot Springs National Park and Crater of Diamonds State Park are both within a short, easy-diving distance. The Depot is free to visit and is located at 403 West 1st Street South, on the edge of Prescott’s Commercial Historic District.
“This is the historic heart of Prescott and it continues to be,” adds Simmons. “From the Mural on Main Street to the historic courthouse, downtown Prescott is a great place to experience Prescott’s heritage and culture.”
